According to Vanity Fair, Kate’s last appearance prior to the pregnancy announcement was just a few days before, on August 30, 2017.
At that time, she accompanied her husband Prince William and her brother-in-law Prince Harry on a tour of the Princess Diana garden at Kensington Palace in advance of the 20th anniversary of her late mother-in-law’s death.
It didn’t escape anyone’s notice that the dress Kate chose for her first appearance since the pregnancy news was blue. Many believe this was a purposeful hint that the baby is a boy.
Expresspoints out that parents typically find out the sex of an unborn baby at the second scan, between 16 and 20 weeks, so it’s possible the Duchess is that far along and that they do know the baby’s sex.
In a speech earlier that day, Prince William revealed that it was Kate who was the one to come up with the idea for Heads Together.
“It was Catherine who first realized that all three of us were working on mental health in our individual areas of focus,” Prince William said, according to Hello! Magazine. “She had seen that at the core of adult issues like addiction and family breakdown, unresolved childhood mental health issues were often part of the problem.”
